Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity and falling head long, he burst in the midst and all his bowels gushed out. Acts 1:18

    This is a very grotest scripture which tells us Judas Iscariot purchased a field with the thirty pieces of silver, even though he returned the money as an act of contrition, but the elders used the money for that purchase. The question is did Judas Iscariot repent of what he did? the answer is no he was sorry but he committed the unpardenable sin in blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. He will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire for what he did and unlike Peter who was restored by the Lord for denying Him three times Judas had his opportunity to repent when Jesus said to him wherefore comest thou friend in the Garden of Gethsemany? This is a warning to all of us to seek the Lord while He may be found, for there is coming a day when He may not be found.

  • #For he was numbered with us and had obtained part of this ministry. Acts 1:17

    Peter is talking about Judas Iscariot as John 6:70 Jesus said have I not chosen you twelve? and one of you is a devil? At that time the disciples did not think that of Judas Iscariot, for he was in charge of the money bag but he would prove to be the devil when he sold the Lord Jesus Christ for thirty pieces of silver. This was the price of a slave so you say how do we judge people, so as to not pick a devil? Jesus said the only thing that could have saved Judas Iscariot was for his mother to miscarry. Judas Iscariot was picked by the Lord to fulfill scripture. Jesus said we shall know them by their fruits. So we are called to be fruit inspectors. How can they hear except they have a preacher? How shall he preach except the Lord sends him? My dad said some were sent, and some just went. The one who is sent by God is Spirit-filled and will speak thus says the Lord.

  • #Men and brethren, this scripture must need have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was the guide to them that took Jesus. Acts 1:16

    Peter is referring to Psalm 41:9 Yea mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. This is the Holy Spirit using David to foretell what Judas Iscariot would do to the Lord Jesus Christ by eating the bread of the Lord's Supper, then betraying Him for thirty pieces of silver. David in Psalm 55:13 spoke of a friend who went to the house of God, his equal and we can recall being betrayed by false friends who gossip about us leading to the loss of a spouse. Paul had many trials among false brethren in II Cor. 11 and we must beware of those who befriend us, only to betray us for monetary gain. I spent almost a month in a mental hospital being given psychotropic drugs causing me to hallucinate saying things about my wife that were not true and then they told my wife and she separated from me. This is just an anatomy of false friends who speak kind words in your face while telling lies behind your back. Love believes all things, bears all things, and rejoices in the truth. Jesus told all the disciples one of you will betray me, and all the disciples said Lord is it I? Then Jesus said he that eats bread with me and none of the disciples knew it was Judas Iscariot He was talking about until it happened. We must be careful who we trust as the scripture tells us not to put our confidence in men whose breath is in their nostrils.

  • #And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples and said, (the number of names together were about a hundred and twenty,) Acts 1:15

    Peter stood up in those days and the manuscripts reported there were about 120 names in the upper room waiting on the promise of the Father, the Holy Ghost, and Jesus in John 21 restored Peter from his failures of denying the Lord. I Cor. 15:6 reported there were about 500 that had witnessed the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, of whom some were asleep and these were the many infallible proofs of the risen Lord, therefore, Peter was now bold to stand up in those days. We too must stand up as witnesses of these things, for because He lives we live also and have the Holy Spirit to seal us in the body of Christ until the day of our redemption.

  • #These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus and with his brethren. Acts 1:14

    The 120 in the upper room continued with one accord in prayer and supplication. Mary,  the mother of Jesus was prominent among the women that were there as well as the brothers of Jesus. They were insisting that Mary remained a virgin after the birth of the Lord Jesus, which is debunked by this verse as Joseph and Mary were intimately involved and Jesus had half brothers. Thank God for the prayers of Mary for she was at the cross beholding her Son, the Lord Jesus, and Jesus told John to behold your mother. Children are to honor their parents all the days of their lives. We do not hear of Joseph being in the upper room so it could be he was there and just not mentioned. We do not have to obey our parents once we move out of the house but we must honor and respect their opinions.

  • #And when they were come in they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Mathew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. Acts 1:13

     All of these disciples except Judas Iscariot were gathered into the upper room to pray for the promise of the Holy Spirit. Paul replaces Judas Iscariot, who committed suicide for betraying the Lord which looks like he suffered from mental illness. Mental illness has been a problem with mankind since the fall of Adam and we today have medication that one can take that mitigates the suffering of those with mental illness. 

  • #Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. Acts. 1:12

    This is a distance less than a mile that the Jews would journey on a sabbath day and this is the distance the Mount of Olives is from Jerusalem. So the disciples are following what the Lord told them in the Olivet discourse that they were to be witnesses for him, yet many would be offended and this would turn out to be a testimony for them. Well, praise the Lord that we have received the promise of the Father and we look forward to the blessed hope of the Church, the glorious appearing of the Lord in the Rapture of the Church. The world is all abuzz about the success of the commercialization of space but we as Christians look forward to our glorified bodies that will not need a spaceship to take us to heaven. Doctor Luke is doing a great job of focusing on our heavenly bodies and not our terrestrial bodies that are subject to gravity. May the Lord come quickly to take us away to our heavenly home is my prayer.

  • #And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven. Acts 1:10,11

    There were two angels dressed in white apparel who comforted the disciples as Jesus was caught up in the clouds and taken to heaven. Thank God the same Jesus will so come for us in like manner so we can rest assured at the passing of our loved ones that whether we wake or sleep we will be caught up in the clouds to forever be with the Lord. Man is trying to get to heaven with space ships, as today Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos will be going up into space with three other members. We pray for their safety and that they will marvel at how Jesus was caught up into space with His glorified body. We too will have a body just like His that will not need a spaceship to get us there.

  • #And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Acts 1:9

    We see the ascension of the Lord Jesus into the heavens and this is a glorious sign of what will happen when He returns in the clouds for the Rapture of the Church. We too will experience being caught up in the clouds to forever be with the Lord. The disciples are sad to see Him leave them but they remembered the command to tarry ye in Jerusalem till ye shall be indwelt with power from on high, after that the promise of the Holy Ghost will be given to them. We too are waiting for the promise of the second Advent of Christ for the Church. The Second Advent shall be in two phases with the Rapture of the Church first, then seven years of tribulation with the Lord descending in the clouds on white horses with the saints. Then the kingdom of God will be restored to Israel.

  • #But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth. Acts 1:8

    The Greek word for power is dunomus, which we get the English word dynamite. So we will receive that dynamite power to proclaim the gospel all over Jerusalem, Judaea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the world when the Holy Ghost is indwelling us. This is the power that we receive by placing our faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that you will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved, and thine house. We have computers connected to the Internet that allows us to spread the gospel all over the uttermost parts of the world now in fulfillment of the Great Commission. I thank God Facebook is connecting the world so that we can share the good news of our Savior. So get busy and start working in the vineyard before night comes and no man can work.
